New Poll: Majority of North Carolina Voters More Idiotic Than Previously Thought

News

Your Wonkette editor was happily trawling polling data on her Friday afternoon -- how else do you get a wild weekend started -- when she belatedly noticed a fun head-scratcher in a recent Public Policy Polling item about the upcoming vote on North Carolina's Amendment One, which would add a ban on same-sex marriage and civil unions to the state constitution. Ready for what the polling revealed? You may need to read this twice: "55% of voters in the state support some form of legal recognition for gay couples in the form of either marriage or civil unions to only 41% completely opposed. But at the same time 55% of voters plan to support the amendment that would prohibit any legal recognition for same sex couples while only 41% are opposed." Did you notice that, how the second thing does not seem to follow from the first? Why is this? Do not think any harder than the majority of North Carolinians about the answer.


It's just plain old classic stupidity:

The problem for opponents is that only 40% of voters actually know that the amendment bans both gay marriage and civil unions. With those voters the amendment is failing by a 60-38 margin. But with voters who think all the amendment does is ban gay marriage, 27% of the electorate, it's passing by a 72-27 margin. And with voters who admit they don't actually know what the amendment does, 26% of the electorate, it leads by a 64-28 margin.

(Our bold.)

Don't you just need a shot now, or fifty? See, wild weekend underway already. [PPP]

The police have clearly failed to stop the scourge of black kids selling water to thirsty people, so your average law-abiding, permit-respecting white lady has no choice but to take matters into her own (did we mention they were white?) hands. You might call her a busybody gone power mad or a simple tool of racist micoaggression, but we just call her "Permit Patty."
